      4th Annual T.E.A.L. Walk for Ovarian Cancer

      Tell Every Amazing Lady About Ovarian Cancer
      Louisa M. McGregor Ovarian Cancer Foundation

      Tell Every Amazing Lady's (T.E.A.L.) mission is to promote awareness of the signs and symptoms of Ovarian Cancer, to enable early detection, and to help find the cure for this deadly disease.

      September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and teal is the ribbon color associated with the disease.

      After Louisa M. McGregor's Ovarian Cancer diagnosis in 2007, she and her sister Pamela Esposito-Amery started Tell Every Amazing Lady, or T.E.A.L. the following year. They were both shocked to learn that the prognosis for this cancer is so poor because doctors lack the knowledge, understanding, and tools to detect the disease early when survival chances are best. They began to understand that there was a vicious cycle at work, almost as insidious as the disease itself: lack of awareness, lack of treatment options, and lack of ability to diagnose come down to lack of funding for research. That is why they created Tell Every Amazing Lady.
      We draw attention to this critical disease, which is the leading cause of death among gynecological cancers, through our annual T.E.A.L. Walk and other events throughout the year.

      Join us on September 8, 2012 for our 4th Annual T.E.A.L. Walk! Start a team, join a team, or register as an individual!
